I make bath fizzies as a hobby, for my own personal use, and I've been recreating scents from a well know bath bomb company. They use vanilla absolute, which is super expensive, and I was looking for an alternative.
I found out that benzoin essential oil is a great sub in for vanilla absolute, and it smells exactly like a strong, vanilla base. Perfect!

I use this to create a softened vanilla scent to my cold process soap recipes. I use just a flop to blend with other essential oils. A 16 oz. size lasts a good long while. Great price, can't find anywhere else.

The smell is terrific. Can't wait to use it in a soap? Looking forward to blending with other essential oils for roller Bottles.

Not just an oil, but a fragrance base that holds the mid note range as well as the undertone fragrances. Very rich and perfect for either sweet or savory blends. Love the woody residual fragrance left behind. Very complex on its own.

The smell of this oil makes me happy, though the oil itself is extremley sticky and syrupy like, but it is so worth it. I put the bottle in a cup of hot water to liquify so that I can use it in my diffuser. Great oil.

Love this benzoin. It smells a lpt like vanilla and great for making natural perfume. I dilute with jojoba and mix with the myrrh and other essential oils. It just makes the oils last for the whole day and smells beautiful.

I cordered this product by accident when It cam e in I kindof liked scent but the product is so viscous in its natural state I dd not know how to us it but soon learned that a hot tabwater bath for the amber glass bottle containing it brought it to its oily state . in its oil form I have used it in every type application imaginable especially body fragrance and other skin products. the fragrace is soft but not weak is is masculine and sexy without being loud and never over, in reviews from my peers and personal opinion it is a blend of light sandalwood, vanilla, fresh tobacco and a faint jint of camphor , cedar and other basalmic and cured wood frag. the experience is light fresh and clean not loud at all but lasting all day an into the night. if i ever wer run out i will definately order more. with its lasting fragrance and thick nature

Great smell! More of a cream-soda taste than vanilla, but it adds a nice sweetness to more masculine products without being floral or woody.
